Starting in the pre photoshop times, if only to see how he was completly free to transform in any way his images through scissors, tape and spray, the book would be completly worth the price. Plus you can see his artistic approaches from conception to the actual photograph, his talent in drawing, painting, and retouch.
Besides being the creative force behind Grace Jones imaginery he is also the creator of so well known ads like the Chanel campaing for Coco with Vanessa Paradis or the building with the screaming ladies in each balcony claiming: Egoistee!. the DVD included has all of this in a very good quality and goes around 40 minutes, so I am not clear why somebody here complains about it. Check what is available in youtube to have an idea.
Much further than advertising or even the fashion scene he created, the book goes directly into the ART land, and is absolutly a must for anyone into photography, fashion or contemporary culture. How he is able to create a completly different universe of his own, full of a distinctive iconography full of sense of humor and chic make him a full and interesting creator. One must wonder how is it possible he is not better known outside France.
